How to make your hot tub into an outdoor oasis

In the busy-ness of modern life, a lot of people would do anything to have their own luxurious space to retreat to relax in at the end of the day. This is just one reason why the ownership of hot tubs is rising, to give users their own personalised experience, tailored to their preferences. So how can you make your hot tub into an outdoor oasis?

Decide how you best relax

Different people will have different ideas about what they’d like to use their hot tub for the most, which is why it’s important to visualise what you are aiming for. Both design and purpose are important – what do you want it to look like when it’s finished and what will you use it for? If you’re aiming for a romantic feel, why not choose a smaller hot tub model?

Decking around your hot tub can provide an intimate and private feel, where you can also add candles, lighting, and enjoy drinks from the oasis of your hot tub. If you’re aiming for use as a family, a larger tub may be preferable, with plenty of space around it, or for ultimate relaxation, why not create a whole “spa” area, with a real luxurious feel?

Creating a hot tub “spa”

Many people choose to enjoy spa weekends or days away, but hot tub owners can recreate this experience from the privacy of their own home, with exclusive hot tub use! Design is at the centre of creating this relaxing feel, for example using cool, blue colours can evoke calming emotions, whilst adding palm trees and other plants around your hot tub can create additional privacy.

You can even accessorise your hot tub by using the built-in lights to select the colour you most like, whilst it is up to you to create a surrounding area that reflects the “spa” vision that you want to recreate. For example, you could consider surrounding your hot tub with a luxurious stone pathway or creating the ultimate retreat with a pavilion or gazebo of your choice.

Energise yourself through hot tub exercise

For those of us who prefer to rejuvenate by doing some exercise, the hot tub is ideal for this too. You can either get a hot tub combined with a swim spa to swim at home, or use your hot tub as part of your exercise and recovery routine. The warm water relieves any pain from injuries, offers the ability to work out without high impact on the joints, and offers a private setting to relax following your exercise too. If this is how you energise yourself, why not combine different elements that you like by creating an outdoor gym area with hand weights, and pool-exercise accessories?

Considerations for your outdoor hot tub oasis

There are some considerations to make when creating your hot tub oasis. For example, you might prefer greater privacy from neighbours, or maybe you require a larger hot tub to seat more friends and family. Your outdoor oasis can become an extension of your home and indoor space, so think carefully about where to place your hot tub. Many users choose to have their hot tub close to their house, in order to incorporate it into a decking area, as a direct extension of their home.
